Project Narrative• In 2012, two friends, Jared and Simon, decide to

take their passion for working on motorcycles and customization to another level. Already the friends are working together in a fairly successful motorcycle shop, well established within the community. The idea of trying to make a statement within the competitive world of drag racing while also remaining true to their roots of just hanging out and having fun with their bikes just seemed very appealing. They decided to name the extension of their current company “Two-Wheeled Terror.” The company would focus on mainly motorcycle performance, also providing the everyday customer simple service alternatives with a friendly atmosphere. The parent company already utilizes a solid part sales and service with about $3 million in revenue.

Overview• The reason the idea got sparked, of course came

for the art of custom and performance in the motorcycle world. Also the daily customer traffic seemed to have a want to make their motorcycle purchases a bit more unique at the time of purchase. By offering this service to customers, they can have the confidence that their motorcycles will receive the great deal of performance attention while staying budget friendly as well.

General Approach1. Managerial Approach-Minimal new equipment would need to be

purchased at the “opening” of the new entity. Most of the initial investment has been made by the parent company for tools, shop supplies and most of the parts. The integration of a new parts database to deal with additional aftermarket companies specializing in the needed parts will be required. Jared and Simon will both lead the helm of this project with sharing both performance and racing duties.

2. Technical Approach-Since both Jared and Simon would need a training course with an engine and chassis dynamometer (no brand specified at this time) most of the technical know-how is already there. Programs that will be used are Bazazz, Two Brothers Juice Box, and the popular DynoJet Power Commander. When used in conjunction with a chassis dyno, Jared and Simon can extract as much horsepower from customers motorcycles as possible.

Constraints• Lack of productivity-This new addition of the

company will of course cost some of their resources and could result in a loss of money if not successful. It must remain competitive, as well as profitable.

• Neighborhood disruption-Given the nature of drag racing and tuning, sometimes the deadlines or time schedules are not met where they would like to be and late hours would have to be utilized. With that said, late night tuning of loud motorcycles could upset some of the shops neighbors within close proximity. Measures will be taken to cut down on the majority of the noise.
